Good luck

Hi all,

Yes, it's nearly the weekend. We had some of Daisy's friends around this morning for a play and then we saw more at the park this afternoon. We didn't go further as the car was in for a service. Martha and Daisy are now safely tucked up in bed, so I can have a little blog hop.

I found this wonderful sketch at The Sweet Stop and thought I'd have a go. As there are a few green challenges this week, I thought I would use this super cute image from Stamp Fairy called Herb and used lots of scraps of green paper. The sparkly ribbon is one of my new craft fair pruchases. The scalloped border was made by punching lots of circles and attaching them together. I quite like the effect.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Stamp Fairy -Show us your green
Fab n Funky - All things green
Allsorts - Luck of the Irish
